Summary

Daejin Kim is a Ph.D. student in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech. He also received an M.S. in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) at Georgia Tech in 2018. Since 2015 after he joined in the Georgia Tech research group as a graduate student assistant, Daejin has been involved in various research projects related to vehicle energy and emissions modeling, mobile-source pollutant dispersion modeling, and developing education tools for transportation students. In his ongoing dissertation research, he is developing a streamlined data processing model that connects regional travel demand models with mobile source emissions calculator (MOVES-Matrix) and pollutant dispersion models (e.g., AERMOD, RLINE, CALINE4) through a high performance supercomputing cluster.
